||Basic human body measurements for technological design

||This International Standard provides a description of anthropometric measurements which can be used as a basis for the comparison of population groups. The basic list is intended to serve as a guide for ergonomists who are required to define population groups and apply their knowledge to the geometric design of the places where people work and live. This list is not intended to serve as a guide to the taking of anthropometric measurements, but only as a source of information to the ergonomist and designer on the anatomical and anthropometrical bases and principles of measurement which are applied in the solution of design tasks. This International Standard may be used in conjunction with national or international regulations or agreements to assure harmony in defining population groups. In its various applications, it is anticipated that the basic list will be supplemented by specific additional measurements. Contents: scope; definitions; measuring conditions; basic anthropometric measurements.
